Making OpenStack Safe for Pets

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Many Enterprise customers are well on their way towards adopting OpenStack for (at least) the Cattle rich pastures of their test & DevOps infrastructure, and are increasingly interested in consolidation of existing enterprise applications and mission critical services into that same infrastructure and management paradigm.

Many of those applications exhibit needs and characteristics more like Pets rather than Cattle however, presenting a barrier both for consolidation and broader adoption of cloud / OpenStack by the Enterprise.

While some have argued that Cloud / OpenStack is simply the wrong infrastructure for pet-like applications, we would posit that isn't and shouldn't be the case.  

In this talk, we will talk about trends that we are seeing with respect to adoption of OpenStack by Enterprise customers, and how that is driving our investment in OpenStack as well as our underlying compute, networking, storage, Operating System and virtualization technologies. We will talk about ways in which Oracle plans to contribute to OpenStack, and what we believe are the key areas of investment needed to address the needs of cloud wanting Enterprise customers, including high-availability cloud services, fault-tolerant cloud infrastructure, simplified cloud lifecycle management and more.

While the day may come when Enterprise applications can be thought of as Cattle, until then significant value exists in meeting the needs of Enterprise customers wanting their pets to thrive in the cloud, and who tend to think of their cloud infrastructure as pet-like too. Eric Saxe will co-present this session.
